Samsung rolls out 4.1 Jelly Bean update to Galaxy Note, S II in March, Ace 2 in April
Samsung has revealed its update schedule for existing Android smartphones, and the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II will both get the 4.1 Jelly Bean update in March, while more affordable devices like the Galaxy Ace 2 and S Advance will start receiving the update in April. The information comes from the official Samsung Ukraine website, and is likely true for all unlocked handsets, while for those having a carrier branded device, the process might take longer.

All devices mentioned below will be updated to Android 4.1.2, and good news is that some tablets are also included in that list. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Tab 8.9 are getting bumped up to Jelly Bean.

Maybe my T-Mobile S2 will get JB in May/June. That would make the wait for July when the Razr X gets launched much more bearable.

I couldn't wait that long, so I flashed custom JB ROM on it already. Was thinking I'm going to get data soon, will have to get the device ready for tethering so the babies could watch their Dinosaur Train and Go Diego Go on Netflix with their tablets when we go out...

I had CM10 running on it before, but one day it just died and wouldn't boot up. I got it replaced and now I'm running Nova Launcher, it helps, but Touchwiz (old Touchwiz, not the Nature UX) is still my weakness.

which region and carrier device is this? Just because ICS gets announced/released for one region/carrier doesn't mean it applies to the rest. (If you really wanted to, you could have just changed the region code and downloaded without much of an issue)

I just hope that it isn't too much later after March 3 that the US variants get updated to JB.n I'm thinking about upgrading to it and would love it if it were to get "the latest and greatest" (I know that 4.1.2 isn't the latest, but it is one of the latest for the GS2.)

Uhmmm, I'm starting to have doubts about Sammy update of the Note... It's the 3rd time now that it was pushed back, it's the same as strike three to me... Don't make me change my avatar, cos the xPhone from Moto is coming with "on time updates". :/ You hear me Sammy boy.

HAhaha, Moto is renowned for never updating their phones and their locked bootloaders. Never buy Moto

I could care less what Moto was known for before Google bought it... It's a new Sheriff in town, and it's name is xPhone!!! Never say never DigitalMD, cos you might find yourself praising Moto again down the road. I'm for updates on time, or Samsung should simply, not promise it.

I have my razr hd (international version) with unlocked bootloader on jelly bean 4.1.2. Who has 4.2 yet? Some chinese manufacturers. I love the almost stock android, smartactions and the build quality. Last week I've got to the sea with my phone on my hand and it didn't have any problem. I even had to spill a glass of water on purpose to my phone because a girl I was hanging out with didn't believed the water repellent capabilities. The kevlar is so cool and never gets scratched, so then I see all those gs3 with cases and I ask to myself why would someone design a phone to use it with a case or extra cover?

What the freaking HELL! Every time I find a story about SII finally getting this update it's another 2 months away. I bet they are scheduling it so everyone who bought the original SII when it came out in the states, there contract is now up before this releases so you opt to buy a new phone instead of finding out how much better the SII runs with Jelly Bean. I almost feel like rooting again, but every rom I have tried all had issues one way or another, Stock is the only one that worked right.

I guess I'll get a new phone and update my GSII in November.

I flashed the Spain Jelly Bean of GS2 yesterday and everything went fine except a SIM card detection problem, I don't know what I did wrong, I purchased my GT-I9100 factory unlocked and it worked fine, yet this update made my phone virtually useless without wi-fi
